North Coast Times - - SPORT -

JOON­DALUP snapped a three­game los­ing streak to com­plete a dom­i­nant dis­play over arch-ri­val Wan­neroo on day two of the north­ern derby in WA Pre­mier Cricket.

WA rookie Josh Inglis, who is on the verge of his state de­but, starred for the Cen­tu­ri­ons with a bru­tal un­beaten cen­tury at Kingsway Re­serve on Satur­day.

Joon­dalup was gun­ning for an out­right vic­tory, hav­ing al­ready se­cured first-in­nings points on the first day, but could not reach the 20 wick­ets needed.

The Roos held firm to fin­ish the match on 5-176, with the vis­i­tors hav­ing de­clared at 6-276 with a 137-run lead.

Inglis belted 121 from 143 balls in a grade-cricket mas­ter class.

Joon­dalup’s Si­mon Branston was en­ter­tain­ing with a quick­fire 38 from 23 balls.

Wan­neroo’s Rob Richards (50) and Dan Lawrence (51) each made a half-cen­tury, while team­mates Matthew Dzod­zos (2-52) and Bai­ley Ny­lan­der (2-58) were ef­fec­tive.

The re­sult kept Joon­dalup in fourth spot and Wan­neroo in 13th.

The teams head into the fi­nal round of the sea­son, with the Cen­tu­ri­ons fac­ing Univer­sity and the Roos tak­ing on Gos­nells.
